GEO Energetica Invests $17 Million to Expand Brazil Biogas Plant

Sept. 24 (Bloomberg) -- Geo Energetica SA, a Brazilian developer of biogas power plants, will invest 35 million reais ($17.3 million) to quadruple the capacity of a project at a sugar-cane mill in the southern state of Parana.

The plant will have 16 megawatts of capacity and produce 12,000 cubic meters of biomethane a day once the expansion is complete in 2014, Alessandro Gardemann, director for Londrina, Brazil-based Geo Energetica, said today in a telephone interview. It runs on vinasse and other byproducts of cane processing from the Cooperativa Agricola Regional de Produtores de Cana mill.

GEO Energetica expects to sign its second contract next month to build a similar plant at a mill in Brazils’s center west region, and to complete another deal by year-end, worth a combined total 200 million reais, he said.
